lyrics

Great people of Kalapana
There’s been rumors going ‘round
Everybody say we aim to tax you
For the lava in the ground

Now do that make any sense?
Would we do a thing like that?
But the truth is, if we don’t do something
Gonna have to be some cutbacks

Y’all know bout that mountain up there
Y’all know it’s bout to blow it’s lid
Now we ain’t got to rebuild if you don’t want
But we kinda figured that you did

Might flow down to your power plant
All your businesses and schools
In fact, no might about it
Only question is how soon

Gonna head down to your houses
Gonna melt your front screen door
Gonna burn up all your pictures
but you can always take some more

And y’all people gonna go crazy
Gonna be chaos throughout the land
And if we can pay no police
Somebody’ll kill you where you stand
Might be the police

And that’s if you survive
A good many of y’all won’t
Some people try not to think about it
But I don’t

No more running for office
No one around but me
Finally, the whole island
In perfect harmony

But since you got to be here
And I got to share the world with you
Seem like that old Volcano Tax
Is the best thing we can do
